I am Thankful.

This Thanksgiving, I haven’t thought about what I am thankful for. I have seen the facebook statuses of others each day, the inspiring quotes and the abundance of Pinterest material. But what about me? Why haven’t I thought about this and why haven’t I expressed gratitude?

I become preoccupied with the every day stressors of life. What performance is going on at work, what blog post to write, what menu to plan, what to wear. I get so preoccupied with “finding time for fabulous” that I don’t sit and actually give thanks for all the fabulous going on around me.

Yesterday, I was able to stop. Being with family, eating, and doing nothing was on the agenda. Glorious.

Yesterday, today, and tomorrow, I am thankful. I am thankful not only for the big stuff, like my family, loved ones, my job, the roof over my head, but I am also thankful for every small thing, too. Like Kennedy’s long fingers. Those are just precious and I am thankful I get to hold her hands.

I hope you al enjoyed  yesterday with the ones you love. I pray that your day was slowed down and that you can be thankful for just doing nothing.

    I’ve had to remind myself to take the time to express gratitude for all that I have as well. Life goes by waaay too fast!

    I’m thankful for darling friend like you. We met Cami for tacos last week, and we wished you were there! Plus the turkey mole taco was amazing.
